PV Sindhu storms into Hong Kong Open quarterfinals

PV Sindhu storms into Hong Kong Open Super Series semi-finals

The resistance was short-lived as PV Sindhu was able to wrap up the match quickly and will now face either Akane Yamaguchi or Sayaka Sato in the quarterfinals of the competition.

While, in the second game, Sindhu had to fight hard to ensure a win for herself as the Japanese was leading initially and was just few points away to push the match into a decider. In 2016 Summer Olympics, she won the silver medal in the women's singles event. Sindhu again took a 3-0 lead in the second game and was looking to replicate what she did in the opener. It is a fine win considering the Japanese was seeded number five.

Sindhu marked her spot in the quarter-finals by coming strong over Aya Ohori of Japan and defeating the Asian junior champion 21-14, 21-17. She will next meet eighth seed Chinese Chen Yufei.




After compatriots, Saina Nehwal and HS Prannoy crashed out of the Hong Kong Open Superseries in the second round of the badminton championship - Pusarla Venkata sindhu stands as the sole Indian to continue dominance in the tournament.

It was also curtains for India in the men's singles after 10th-ranked HS Prannoy went down fighting to Japan's Kazumasa Sakai 21-11, 10-21, 15-21 in a 54-minute battle. The players met for the first time. He squandered three match points to slump to a 21-15, 9-21, 20-22 defeat to the World No. 52 Lee Dong Keun of Korea.
